Major League Fishing announced today that BACAS, a Houston-based interventional pain management group that specializes in treating injuries, has joined the league as the 2014 official physician sponsor.
“BACAS is an incredible organization with some of the most dedicated, caring people I’ve ever met," said MLF GM Jim Wilburn. "We can’t begin to express how pleased we are to have formed a partnership with this tremendous and skilled group of people.
"The physicians and specialists at BACAS have a true grasp of the types of injuries our anglers face, and they have designed a rehabilitation program to address these injuries. They truly have the well-being of anglers in mind. We look forward to a long-term relationship with BACAS.”
Said BACAS senior VP Melonie Butler: “Major League Fishing presents excellent shows that focus on the intense competition and stress that accompany professional fishing events. We felt that becoming a sponsor of Major League Fishing would be a great way to showcase the effectiveness of BACAS treatments in getting professional anglers out of pain and keeping them in the competition."
